Bhubaneswar: The cyber cheats are seen taking the new trick of using photos of senior administrative officers and popular persons in social media like whatsapp.
For example, It has come to notice of the office of Chief Secretary that a fake telephone number bearing number 9315641784 is using the photo of Chief Secretary Sri Suresh Chandra Mahapatra, and is asking people to pay some bills or remit some meney. One such message as mentioned below has come to our notice.
We want to inform people that there is no such number of Chief Secretary. Chief Secretary never asks any one to pay any bill on his behalf or remit money to any account.
All are are requested to remain alert and careful about such messages. Anybody receiving any such message is requested to inform cyber police station or nearest police station.
Chief Secretary will not remain accountable for any transaction done on the basis of these fake messages.
Further, we request citizens to remain vigilant about such social media messages coming from accounts bearing photos of administrators, Ministers or renowned persons.
